Play Safer. Play Smarter.
The popularity of backpacking continues to grow because it’s such a healthy way to experience nature and see the world on a budget. Backpackers eagerly anticipate their next adventure, knowing their feet can take them to places the average tourist will never see. Backpacking offers many physical and mental health benefits. In addition to exercise, walking in nature reduces stress and oftentimes depression, gives strength and confidence and it helps the hiker learn flexibility and be open-minded.
Although backpacking can be done almost anywhere, there are some amazing backpacking vacation spots around the world. Here are some trendy backpacking destinations:
Beth has enjoyed backpacking in many parts of the world over the years, but her favorite adventures have happened in Southeast Asia. She is fascinated by the Asian culture, people, architecture and scenery, and has made some lifelong friends along the way. While backpacking is probably the most peaceful and relaxing activity Beth does, she’s experienced enough to know she must stay alert at all times. Walking through nature can be awesome and yet dangerous due to falls, getting lost, bad weather, poisonous plants, wild animals, illness and more.
That’s why Beth came to Good Neighbor – to protect herself in the event of a backpacking accident or illness.
According to a recent study, the number one cause of death in the backcountry is falls and the second is getting lost. Gravity can be dangerous in the backcountry, as 56% of all deaths are due to falls, avalanches, rock falls and falling trees.
Backpacker travel insurance plans can protect you in the event of an accident or illness while backpacking with comprehensive medical and evacuation coverage.
These days Beth makes sure her backpacker travel insurance plan includes evacuation coverage. On one of her early backpacking trips in Indonesia, one of her friends fell and was injured while they were hiking in a mountainous area. The group didn’t think they could safely transport her to a medical facility themselves, so they contacted the evacuation service from the insurance policy. Since then, Beth has made sure to have a backpacker travel insurance policy with evacuation coverage.
